You dry out the beer by adding sugar but you can also add a bit of flavor and something
different to it with non-table sugar.Sugar in the raw, Turbinado, and Demerara can contribute
Posted in thread: It's a class 3 felony to homebrew in the town I live in... on 12-05-2013 at 12:42 PM
Would have expected a way more friendly outlook on brewing itself with all the
pioneer/subsistence living you hear about Alaska. Wasn't aware that localities could do this -
start a homebrew speakeasy...

I'm going to try to make one out of a 12" funnel and hdpe bucket with either o-rings or glue
and silicone, similar to what I've seen elsewhere. I'll start a thread for it, good or bad. If
